Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

  • Report customization needs work, it's tough to export the data I want in a format that doesn't require extra work after an export.
  • Support is fantastic, but hard to get a hold of. Often you need to leave a message on a voicemail and get a call back.
  • There is a strong learning curve to the interface, however once you become comfortable with it.. it's very powerful.

Applicantstack offered a high level of customization for us, at a price point their competitors couldn't touch. While it's got some room for improvement in reporting, we've been able to fill every gap with custom programming at an incredibly reasonable rate.
